    hardly think so... I wrote something up about this yesterday. Take-Two still owns publishing rights to Duke Nukem Forever....so it will continue and be released. But I'm sure someone will help out 3D Realms at some point.

    And your 2nd URL is dead with a database error.

    Comes up for me fine when I posted, and right now. Their forums are probably getting slammed hard by all the hits on the link with this news/rumor flying around.

    Ahahahahahaha, perfect end for this project. 3DR never got their priorities straight. You can only spend so much time on a game before its not profitable to make.

    Take Two can continue then, but how well? Not that they need the 3DR people who worked on it, but it was 3DR's staff that had the ideas for it. I wonder if this could be yet another graphics quality update with this change of hands.

    Why would anyone help out 3DR? What great titles that are current do they still own? They lost a lot to other publishers/developers, including Prey 2 and Max Payne. If Take Two can continue the Duke Nukem titles, assuming they take the gamble and try, there is nothing else of 3DR's worth saving.

    Apple would be able to make use of EA's titles and large market presence. 3DR has neither.

    To be honest I'd like to see someone buy up EA.... I can't stand how they do things now...DRM this DRM that.. screws up more than it prevents which is nothing.

    ^ Probably should have a NSFW tag but its not much really.

    Some of the footage looks decent, some looks pretty bad, but then it depends on the quality of the video.

    There is a warning above the video about the animated nudity.

    And you have to drop down the menu for age verification also from Game trailers

    *Some animated nudity is there so be advised*

    Both of you drop it.

    Both posts are similar, the difference being that save linked it without adding a name to the link.

    And why is everything about embedding with videos anyway? I prefer the straight up link to the source.

    While Duke Nukem Forever may be gone at least we'll still have Serious Sam Forever to look forward to.
    oh and serious sam III which is a different title i believe.

    I wonder how modern it will look.

    Gearbox picks up where 3DR left off.

    I'll never hold my breath for this game, but "if" it comes out, I still look forward to playing it. For the purpose of its sense of off-color humor and social commentary, the first one was a barrel of laughs.
